The Sun Rooms, or Common Rooms, reminded me of the Panopitcon turned inside-out.
Pipes to channel nitrose (think nitro glycerine) infused acid through the building.
A long exposure under the trestle-like approach to the dock, under which trains still pass regularly.
Standing on the ruins of the former sister dock, looking back at the soon-to-be-demolished family member. The pilings I stood on for the shot were those of the Chicago and North Western RR #3 which was dismantled in 1960 and used to be 2,040-feet long.
The workshop and parts room was full of light and meticulously sorted bolts, nuts, washers, gaskets, and all sorts of specialty hardware.
A divot to let more light and air into the building.
Because of the dangers of storing the materials to make explosives as well as the explosives themselves, there were earthen bunkers all across the plant like this.
“Daisy”… probably for the mill, as it was unusual for women to work at Daisy.
These ruins of buildings recovered acid from the explosives line to be recycled.
